Headed down to the El Mocambo this night to catch Liam Finn.
I was looking forward to seeing this show for a while. My first exposure to
Liam was when he in town with his old man Neil from Crowded House @ Massey Hall. He opened up with a pretty cool one man band set impressed the early crowd. Having enjoyed the performance I downloaded his album form itunes and viewed the Letterman performance and was again quite impressed. On this night Liam played The El Mo with EJ Barnes in last show of their North American tour. They played a great set which included the crowd pleasers Better To Be, Second Chance, and Energy Spent, but he grabbed the hearts of the Canadian crowd with a great cover of Neil Young's Old Man. Another highlight of the night was the excitingly animated version of Lead Balloon. Overall a great performance that quite pleased the crowded house @ The El Mo. Liam has since come back to Toronto opening up for Eddie Vedder @ Massey Hall and will once again be playing in Toronto @ Lee's Palace on Oct 4th, 2008. This show is not to be missed.
